British Musicians: Daughter 

#16: Daughter 

Daughter are a English indie folk band, formed in London in 2010. It was originally just Elena Tonra as a solo artist, but now they are a trio with guitarist Igor Haefeli and drummer Remi Aguilella. After releasing three EPs in 2010 and 2011, they were signed by 4AD and are set to release their first debut album, If You Leave, in March 2013.Their Wild Youth EP album earned praise from British website For Folk’s Sake who described Daughter as "one of the most unique sounds in the pop landscape today.” Elena commented on being signed to 4AD that, “we couldn’t be happier to be working with 4AD, a label that has released so many inspirational records and whose ethos we hold in very high regard. It really is a privilege."

I first found out about Daughter from listening to the Communion Records: New Faces album and I was really struck by that song, Love. Elena voice did sound a little like Florence Welch, because that song sounded quite dark and haunted but beautiful at the same time. Elena is a very talented singer songwriter; their music is very calm and soothing, great to listen to when you’re relaxing or reading. I am looking forward to their new album! The above songs I linked are just some of my favourites, I love Shallows especially :)
